We had a fantastic time. Wonderful ice skating show in Studio B, and cirque de soleil performances in the Metropolis Theatre. No sea sickness, compared to another cruise line trip to the Bahamas. Great fish and lamb dishes; beautifully presented dishes and desserts. Extremely polite staff in dining rooms, hair salon, stateroom and the security person who checked on us while walking on deck at night. The carpets need replacing and the showers are too small. The art tour and auctions were interesting, but a long wait for home delivery. We were overcharged once on our bar bill, but it was corrected the next day, after talking to Client Services. It was nice to be able to check our bill daily from the stateroom TV. Client Services often had a long lineup. Hopefully, we will be able to try Royal Caribbean again. The price was right this time.

Excellent jewelry and silk carpets. We enjoyed Ephesus more than the Ocropolis
Souda (Chania), Crete
The only place we saw was the market. Good lunch there though.


Try to stay out of the bars, there are so many. We saw a lot of hungover people.
